A+ Program

In 2016, Legislation was passed to open up Missouri’s A+ Scholarship Program to all non-public schools. If students earn the A+ designation, they may be eligible to receive reimbursement for tuition, general fees, subject to legislative appropriation, at a Missouri public community college or career-technical school.

Under the current A+ eligibility requirements, students must:

  • Be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident.
  • Enter into a written agreement with the high school
  • Attend a Missouri A+ high school for three consecutive years immediately prior to graduation.
  • Maintain a cumulative grade point average of 2.5 or higher on a 4.0 scale.
  • Maintain 95% attendance over the four years of high school.
  • Students must complete 50 hours of service for A+.  Those 50 hours can be completed through academic tutoring at a school (not at home).  However, 25 of those hours can also be completed through mentoring, which is working with younger students in a non-academic environment, for instance:  sports camps, vacation bible school, theatre camps, etc.  Must be supervised. Also, 12.5 hours of job shadowing may be counted toward the 50 hours.
  • Maintain a record of good citizenship.
  • Make a good faith effort to secure federal post-secondary student financial assistance funds. (FAFSA)
  • Achieve a qualifying Math Score of 17 on the ACT prior to graduation. See Handbook
